This salad has a great taste, is super healthy, and pretty easy to make. The rainbow power greens salad with black eyed peas tastes so good because it incorporates a few main, awesome foods. The main ingredient is collard greens or cabbage. This will give you a ton of vitamin and iron, and pairing this with the dressing will taste great. Also, it has a healthy portion of black eyed peas. Black eyed peas have a ton of fiber, iron, and zinc – all great things to eat. I hope you try out this recipe, and tell me how you like it.
